Match ends, Doncaster Rovers 0, Crawley Town 0.
Crawley Town earned a point with a fine defensive display to leave Doncaster without a win in eight home games.
Rovers dominated but seldom looked like scoring against a side happy to sit back and play on the break.
Richie Wellens and James Coppinger both went close for Doncaster early on and Theo Robinson had a late header superbly saved by Jamie Ashdown.
Izale McLeod did send a header just wide before the break, but Crawley did not register a shot on target.
Rovers are just one point above the relegation zone following the draw while Crawley drop to 14th, four places and two points above their hosts.
Crawley Town boss John Gregory told BBC Surrey:
"They threw everything at us in the last few minutes and we stood firm and behind the back four, Jamie Ashdown had to make a couple of decent saves in the last couple of minutes.
"It's a good point, our first draw of the season and we will accept it and it's another point on the tally and it was important to get something.
"Doncaster are no mugs, they've just come out of the Championship and I was delighted to come here and get something."
